Abstract Sleep deprivation is highly prevalent in the general population and related to lifestyle in industrialized countries. There has been an increase in this reduction of sleep for half a century and adolescents are particularly affected. Given the magnitude of this sleep restriction, it seems important to focus its mechanisms and its neurocognitive, endocrine, metabolic, weight, psychological and school consequences on adolescents. This sleep deprivation is described and the solutions that can be proposed to adolescents and their family or school environment to increase sleep duration and decrease the negative consequences of their current sleep deprivation are reviewed.
